CAD Check for Parts and Tooling

Repair potential problems early in the design process by routinely checking for issues in the moulded, cast, and forged parts and tooling using SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software which increases productivity, saves money during development and accelerates your time-to-market.


SOLIDWORKS provides automatic checks for draft, undercut and wall thickness problems in moulded, cast and forged parts and tooling. Parts and tooling checks help find and fix potential issues promptly in the part or tooling process.

Key Features

CAD check parts and tooling functionality consists of:
  • Draft Analysis— Establish if a part is drafted sufficiently bearing in mind the material selected for removal from the mould or forging tool
  • Undercut Analysis— Determine whether an undercut feature exists in a part so it can be recognised and fixed, or removed (if undesired), or designed into the tooling so that the undercut feature can be created
  • Parting Line Analysis— Evaluate the part line selection for the desired direction of pull for plastic, cast, or forged parts
  • Thickness Check— Automatically determines and graphically displays part thickness so the designer can focus on places where moulding issues are likely to occur
  • Symmetry Check— Run symmetry tests that help streamline tooling manufacturing by helping engineers select opening gating locations and common areas that can be manufactured together
